I love picking up trends and in recent years few have been better than the underdog winning in the super bowl… annoying then that the bookies generally have this down as a 50/50 coin toss. I think it will be close and potentially low scoring. For me the Pats just have it and I like the look of 6/4 for the Pats to win by up to 10. While its not a bet I would normally place I also think the low scoring pushes first half/second half bets into the limelight, I could see a small lead at half time being wiped out easily and so doing Seattle (half time) / Pats (full time) and reversing that with a 2nd bet offers decent value and a bet that virtually guarantees excitement moving into the 2nd half. I also like the idea of a cheap bet on Blount to score the first and last touchdowns, PP has him at 9/1 for either and yet evens to score at any time.
In each of the last 3 years the super bowl has made me profit, the first 2 because I went with the underdog and then last year when I could not see past a Broncos win : ( but came good with a side bet where I had an overpriced 9/2 on the 3rd quarter containing the most points scored. You can Imagine how delighted I was as Seattle returned the 2nd half kick off for a TD.
Would be great to read about other betting strategies you may have for the big game as we move through the week? Good luck to all in your chase of an exciting & profitable finale and thanks for making it such an enjoyable season!
